Jayashri B Uppin, Gajanana R Naik
The present study was carried out to illustrate the relative evaluation of phytochemical constituents and antimicrobial activity of Premna integrifolia leaves with ethanol, methanol and chloroform extract. A preliminary study of Phytochemical analysis was carried out. Obtained results reveal that the presence of alkaloids, tannins, flavonoids and glycosides in these leaves extract. The antimicrobial activity was tested using disc diffusion method against Styphylococcus. Aureus, Escheria.coli,Bacillus subtilis, Bacillus pumilis, Lactococcus lactis, Klebiella pnemoniae, Proteus mirabilis, Salmonella typhi, Methicillin resistant S.aureus, and fungal cultures like Candida albicans, Aspegillus niger using Tetracycline as antibiotic standard. The outcome showed that the antimicrobial activity were effective in plant extract. From the current investigation, it can be concluded that Premna integrifolia have significant towards antimicrobial activity and potent Phytochemical constituents.
